once we did have the brochure room

LOL- so as I mentioned in the last post - this is THE room from the Banyan Tree hotel brochure-

and of course any traveler knows you never ever get THE room that you see in the hotel brochures---
but once

we did!

we had scheduled a one night lay over in Rome on our way back from the Amalfi Coast one fall and we were in the city only for dinner with a friend of a friend.  We checked in after taking a cab through the rain from the central station- and the man at the desk told me that he was sorry but that he had to put us in a different room - and he said it was not so nice - I said that was OK because we were only there for a night and it would be fine.... LOL- I could tell he was kidding - but I didn't know to what degree until the bell man opened the door to THE room- LOL

here is the write up from the brochure-

Suite Seminario

Suite Seminario is ornately decorated and contains an original renaissance period fresco on the ceiling which was only revealed during recent restoration works!  Refined decor with separate sleeping and seating areas. The suite is of course stylishly decorated with a luxurious bathroom and offers comfortable spacious accommodation with satellite television, free high speed wireless Internet connection,  climate control, mini bar and safety deposit box. The Hotel building is in a prime location in front of the world famous Pantheon.

so sometimes you get lucky...LOL
